CLE Porch

Shibori Dyeing Workshop

Time & Location

Aug 30, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

CLE Porch, 348 S 5th St, Highlands, NC 28741, USA

About the Event

Discover  the simplicity of Japanese Shibori style dyeing, but with fiber  reactive dyes which are safe for home use and available in a wide range  of colors.  You can create stunning hand dyed looks with a few simple  tools and techniques.  Only plant fibers (cellulosic) will work with  these dyes, so think cotton, rayon, bamboo, linen, denim, etc.  we will  work on two small projects and dye them in class; students will take  projects home to cure and wash. Handouts included for take-home use.

Location:   CLE Lecture Hall

Presenter:   Jessica Kaufman first learned to teach batik, tie-dye, and shibori  while working at Gwynn Valley Camp in the early 2000's.  She was hired  to head up the crafts program and was so inspired that she decided to  earn a master's degree in Crafts Education at Prescott College in  Arizona (2008).  She also has an undergraduate degree in teaching  theatre arts, which means that she can give you an entertaining, in  depth, and well-paced course full of insight and experience.
